Source of Protein

Proteins are a group of biological compounds which are present in every live cell, organ and tissue of the body.  Meaning “first” or “of prime importance” in Greek, proteins participate in every cellular process occurring in the body.  Proteins are made up of structures called amino acids, there are a total of 21 amino acids, 9 are essential, the rest are nonessential – you must consume the essential amino acids in your diet because your body cannot make them. 

Dietary protein supports bone health in three main ways: by supplying the raw material required to construct soft bone matrix, by increasing plasma IGF1 and by promoting muscle growth and retention.  IGF1 is a growth hormone that stimulates and increases the activity of osteoblasts (cells which secrete the substance of bone).  It is especially important to ensure that children get enough protein since they are still developing and it is necessary to ensure their growth is unimpaired.  Proteins play an important role in muscle contraction and coordination, they are present in the muscle tissues in the form of many microfilaments and provide muscle structure.  Muscle growth depends on the adequacy of proteins in the body.  Proteins function as building blocks for muscles, bones and cartilage, opt for a variety of whole foods to meet your protein needs including; grass fed meat and poultry, eggs, dairy, seeds, beans and nuts.

Protein contributes to:

·         the maintenance of normal bones

·         a growth in muscle mass

·         the maintenance of muscle mass

·         Protein is needed for normal growth and development of bone in children.

Couscous traditionally is made by hand in the North African countries where it originated. Today couscous is produced mechanically on a large scale doing away with the need for handmade couscous. All couscous is actually a pasta made from durum wheat semolina. With this Wholemeal Couscous, ground wholemeal semolina flour is rolled into balls and the couscous is formed. Once this process is complete the couscous is dried and tested for heavy metals and foreign bodies. 

Couscous is made from wheat, it is NOT gluten free.

High quality & trustworthy service
I have recommended this company to a few of my friends already. Even though I live in France, I won't order my herbs from any other company. I trust the quality of their herbs, their prices are reasonable, and they respond quickly to emails.
